Martial Solal: Live at the Village Vanguard: I Can't Give You Anything But Love
Ottanta sono gli anni di questo geniale musicista, festeggiati in uno dei templi moderni del jazz. Favorita dalla dimensione live, la musica proposta al Village Vanguard si snoda all'insegna dell'imprevedibilità armonica, con in più il furore sacro della vis improvvisativa.

"On Green Dolphin Street" apre la sequenza di pagine memorabili, dove la narrazione appassionante del pianista franco-algerino si traduce in una musica incandescente e muscolosa. È l'ennesimo esito sublime di un magistero dal non comune rigore stilistico, che ha presupposto un costante percorso di ridefinizione.

Ne vien fuori un disco esemplare, in cui la formidabile intensità esecutiva si mescola felicemente alla ricerca timbrica e coloristica. È una musica che intreccia ardite traiettorie, dietro la rassicurante maschera degli standard, divenendo ora inquieta ora elegante ora sfuggente, per sublimare l'infinità di contrasti di cui si compone l'arte.

Per il jazzofilo sommerso da una miriade di inutili proposte, questo è il disco giusto per riconciliarsi con lo spirito del jazz, per un ascolto tonificante, vivificante, quasi terapeutico.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
